We have received the April Numbei' of Godey's La dy's Book. It is replete with exee.1- C over nor Foote. The peculiar friends and parasites of this gen tleman seem to be at a total loss how to account for the hostility entertained towards him by the Southern Rights party. They think it very strange that we are witting to support the nom. inees of the national convention, provided he is not upon the ticket, notwithstanding all whose names are mentioned in connection with the first office of the nation are compromise men. Now we think this matter is very easily explain ed: In the first place Gov. Foote never was a favorite with tlie party, because he was always looked upon as very unsafe and umeliable. In the second place, when it was known there would he a systematic effort made by free, soil and abolition influence in Congress to rob the soath of her rights, in the territories, Governor Foote used all his influence, in getting up the Southern address. And as Senator Butler said of him, " If there is one gentleman in this hall who has contributed fuel to the fires of South ern resistance and indignation, the Honorable Senator (Foote) has fed them as fredy as any other." He did perhaps dS much if not more than any other, n placing the party in the posi tion it occupied in the last canvass, and whan he saw a prospect of gaining a "national reputa tion' he changed his own position and denoun ced as traitors those who would not turn a som erset with him. Hfl exhausted the vocabulary of billingsgate abuse upon the party who had ele vated him, because we would not desert the po sition we had taken in defence of our rights, and which he had once occupied himself. He im pugned the motives of as pure men as the sun ever snono upon. He ioine.il tbe-w ur nartv. o a m who are at all times ready to avail tliemsclves o dissensions m our ranks to achieve a victory. Since the elections, the Southern Rights party have univeasally said, we abide by the decision of the people, and submit to the compromise as a settlement of the slavery question, yet the first thing Got, Foote did when he returned to the Senate, was to introduce a resolution by which hf intended to cut off the nartv from the nation- j al democracy or make them retract what they had said and renounce the principles they had advo cated through the canvass. While Gov. Foote thus exhibited such uncompromising hostility to t.iie party, how can he or his friends expect us to support him even if he should receive a nomi nation by the Baltimore Convention. Gass Butler, Douglass and other great men of the patty differed with us upon the compromise measures, but they never attributed to us any thing but patriotic 'motives. They nevei de nounced ui as traitors. The compromise mea sures will not be in issue in the approaching canvass, and if the nominees should be sound democrats, true to the South on the slavery ques tion, we can support the ticket, if Gov. Foote is not placed upon it. NEW-YORK CORRESPONDENCE. New York, February 10th, 1852. Yesterday was warm and raining. Still, tliere was a good church attendance in the mor" ning. I heard Rev. Dr. Spring deliver another of his winter series of lectures: the subject, Christ glories in the destruction of his enemies. This discourse will be printed, together with the rest of his series, by this eminent theological writer's publisher, M. W. Dodd. Its erusal will richly repay the candid inquirer after truth) .'specially him who cannot reconcile the doctrine of eternal punishment with his notions of Christ's tenderness and compassion. The Dr., will conclude his series (of 18 or 19 lectures) by a discourse next Sabbath entitled, 'Christ's glorious in Heaven." His text yes terday was, Matt, chap 25 41 v. "Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, pre lared for the Devil and his angels." Stuart on the Proverbs" is the abbreviated title ol a com-ln- ntary on the book of Pnn-erbs, by the late professor Stuart of Andover College, and now Crash from the press of M. W. Dodd, City Hall square. It is a very valuable book, especially for theological students of the ancient Hebrew, which with the learned author was more pro foundly familiar, perhaps, than any other living American Biblist. Of course, the commentary is upon the origi nal Hebraic text, and it opens up (if I may bo speak) new light upon many of the phrases and comparisons which is not obvious to the nil" practiced reader in the Translation. The Rev. Mr. Cone (Baptist) and his church, are so much dissatisfied with the present version of the Bible, that they are prepaid :ig a new trans lation. In this Quixotic project, they meet with no support from other Baptists societies nor indeed from any one, beyond their own stone walls in Broome st. Indeed there was an institution within those walls which sympa- From the Democratic Flag. Rebellion in Tisnemiiigo Tell it not in Gath. &c, that a portion of the Union-loving people of Tishemingo County, Miss., have actually rebelled and nullified a law passed by our Union Legislature. Let it be re. membered that this is the same county where Gov. Foote frightened many of the people into fits last summer, by letting them in his hnr rangues, " so help wuQoJ" the State is about to secede from, the Union. It would seem from the resolutions we give below, that the people of old Tish, have become the worst secessionists out. Of course his Excellency Foote will have to issue a proclamation to set mutters straight in Tishomingo county, and we shall expect in a few days, to receive a copy of the Gov's procla mation which will read something like the fol- mECRAPHBI) TO THK YAZOO DEMOCRAT. -o- (B THE l o K 9 LINK lowing: Tlie Crisis Over, We reported last week the proceedings of a meeting held in this place preliminary to the election of Postmaster. Since then one of our citizens has been duly commissioned Postmaster of Yazoo City by the Postmaster General. This appointment it seems to us, is rather irreconci lable with the suggestion of that pink of states manship, John D. Freeman, who wrote to this lent reading matter, and in this respect forms a J lace requesting that the claims of the va. striking cont vast with many of our monthly pe riodicals that flood the country" with literary " trash." The t Ulgravings as usual, are excellent. CIRCUS. Our city has be en highly favored by a visit of of Messrs. Spalding, Rogers & Van Orden with their Mammoth Circus. This is a magnificent tg-oape, and are well worthy public patronage. On Monday night t he Circus was open and the large amphitheatre was perfectly crowded. All were astonished at and highly delighted with the new and extraordinary feats of horsemanship which were exhibited. The enterprising propri etors of this establishment are determined to spare no pains ore xpense for the entertainment of the public. Th v are about having completed in Cincinnati a spifl ndid Steamer "The Floating Palace," upon which to transport their company and make their exhibitions. We may look for them h '.re again next Vail. fXTF"Ve learn that George B. Dixon Esq., has been appointed Postmaster at this place. Mr. Dixon is a clever and accommodating gentleman, well qualified to discharge the du ties which will devolve upon him as Postmaster. We do not speak disparagmgly of the other ap. plicants, when we say Mr. Dixon's appoint ment will give general satisfaction. OCT" We welcome to our exchange list, " The Democratic Flag," a new paper established in Oxford under the editorial charge of our old friend and comrade in arms Capt. Wm. Delay. If the Captain should deal out as heavy blows upon Federal Whiggery as he did upon the" greasers,'' ;h?y had better " stand from under." We ex end to the Captain our right OCT and wish 'Jiim success in his new enter prize. The Whig Party. We notice several calls by the Whig press upon the p arty to organize for the Presidential canvass. The Whigs thinking t iey have made about as mueli capital out of the Union humbug as they can, and seeing the Union Xtemocrats are fraternizing with their former po litical associates, are now urixious to take a c.iance for national spoils. We are really rejoiced to see this stir in the Whig camp. The Democ racy always require a formidable opposition to aiouse them and make them put forth their strength. This Whig movement will complete ly restore harmony to our ranks, and tUe voice ol Mississippi will go up for Democratic princi- pl?s. The Great Webster Demonstration. The Wjbster meeting in New Yor', after a terribly gra nd flourish of 7,000 signa tures to the call , neA vspaper leaders and indr . idual rallyings, was but a tame affair, if his own editorial friends have jiot prejudiced the report . The Tribune says it wa evident from this meeting, if evidence wer; needed that Mr. Webster, with all the great qualities of his intellect, and with the mauy "admirers who delight to do him honor, does not possess that elect i " power which ral lies he masses to his suppc rt. He is not a pop- ,,aT candidate for the Preside ncv- Tie Times corroborates th J Tribunes report, sayii e the meetinS was neiv 3r 80 larg6 f enth stic as had been exn :ted. us eiiuuiuai lur xosimasier ue ueciueu u the people at the ballot box. This we thought rathev an anomalous proceeding and reprobated it at the time. Whether from after reflection, the denar tment considered its ridiculousness r and stultification, or whether this sugges tion was gratuitous on the part of Freeman. we do not know, but it is now certain, the com mission of the pre&ent Postmaster was made out Ion" before tV election was held in this place If the Department suggested this election, to its own stultificatio u, ithaduddeu wanton insult to themrmlftftf thi vlace. After calling an elec- i t ' tion it did not wa 't riven for the voice of the tit izens here tn he hf ard. If John D. Freeman, of his own accord Mil sd it, the people should send a copy of the c institution of the United States and laws of Congress t him that he may know where the app jinting po f Postmaster is, or instruct him t d come home. The Post O. lice Department or John D- Free man, or rather both have by theil' ow act, been placed in rath er a ridiculous and Ob nsurable atti tude. If thev'wanted to consult the jense of the people, they could have learned their cho ice from the recommeudations which went froim this place. But these were unheeded ad John D. Freeman with hi ambition fixeu upon another congressional term, called anelec00. By this trick of demagogism, he hop to avoid the responsibility of making a recom i - a. z r t a i . i i meiiuauun ior rostmaster oi mis place, and whatever disappointment or unpopularity an ap- thised with them so little that it has been worn out, I mean the American and Foreign Bible societv, which refuses the proposed new version. I have occasionally heard Dr. Coxe of Brook lyn in reading a portion of the Scriptures, ex pound tlie passages recited at greater lengih than is anal in the pulpit, and as he did so he would illustrate by quotations from the Great Bible (always before him in his pulpit) which he would translate word for word, and of course more diffusely than in the standard version. This impromtu translation, rarely if ever amounts to what is usually defined as a "new reading," since new readings frequently alter the sense of the phrase or passage, but in Dr. Coxa's rendition it is only to make the accepted meaning more evident. With rare exceptions, the christian community regard with unqualified deprecation and disfavor Rev. Dr. Cone's preposterous at tempt to disfigure and displace the version by which our fathers for twenty generations, have lived and died by, and we cannot but regard the new project as a snare ol tne great adversary oi souls. Francis Palesky, the distinguished Hungarian officer under the illustrious Kossuth, has writ ten a letter from Louisville Ky., to the elitors of the "Tribune" and the 'Times" defending his ex-irovernor from the attacks of tlie Austro American Press, and Smezere and BaUhianyi. and it is published this morning. My opinion must go for what it is worth, but permit me to say that though I never shook hands with Kossuth or participated actively in any demonstation to his honor, I have still been a constant and careful observer of his career in this Country from first to last, and have watch edand weighed not only his every act but every publishsd word which has fallen from his lips. The result is that mv confidence m his patriot ism and integrity, and my admiration for his . .... i .l. i-.v r .u- genius, nas daily increased, in iue leem ui me many narrow-minded and envenomed assaults Proclamation. Whereas. I have learned with much surprise and pain, that a portion of my once obedient and loyal subjects of Tish emingo county, Miss have nullified and set at defiance, a law pas ed by my ''faithful Union legislature" and Whers as, by such rebellion the tax money of said coun ty is withheld from the State treasury, which I had intended to be applied in part payment of the salaries of my faithful Union friends, and whereaa 1 proclaimed it all over the State last summer that peaceable secession could not take place, that county must not be permitted peaceably to secede. Now therefore. I Henry Stuart Foote, Governor of the State of Mississippi, formerly U. S. Senator, and did expect to be again, make this to be my procla mation to my "faithful Union friends throughout the State, calling upon them to ral ly and enforce all laws passed by my faithful Union Legislature, at all hazzards and to the !a t extremity. The, militia of the different counties will be icorganized, and them two big brass cannons captured by my predecessor in the Mexican war and given to this State, Will be or dered in battery, and marched up to Tishemin go county. That tax money must be paid over. Given under my hand at Jackson, and the great seal of the State hereunto aflilxed. We fancy ourself one of his Excellency's staff, with our long Mexican sword driwn forming a blazing segment in the air, marching at the head of the Pumpkin Creek forces, going to whip old Tish in. But in soberness let us consider the cause of this rebellion in Tishemingo county. At the session of tlie Legislature two years ago, in this State, the Memphis and Charlenton Railroad Company, applied for a cliarter for said road to run through this State by Holly Springs, which was granted. The company saw proper to locate the road in another place; though run ning through Tishemingo county ami across the corner of Tippah. The Company applied a f the late session of the Legislature to so amend the charter .as to grant them the right of way to run the road where they have located it, this the w . . t a y 1 Legislature very properly, we minK, refused to do, until the route named in the first charter shall have been surveyed, and then if the route is not deemed practibable, and if the people of North Mississippi, do not subscribe within four months, $000,000 stock, the road will run where the company have seen fit to locate it. Tlie refusal of the Legislature to grant the a mendment to the charterasked for, is what the people of Tishomingo county nullify. We give below a portion of the resolutions lately adopted at a public meeting held at Jacinto, in that count v. New Orleans, March m.

The National Bank at" Buenos Ayres recently paid out two millions of dollars on a forged order. It appears that late in the evening a man named Anders Villegas of a respectable family presented an order purpor ting to be from the Governor, Sor two millions of dollars. The forgery was so admirably perpe trated that none of the officers foi a- moment suspected it, and promptly aid him tbe money. Subsequently tliey sent word to the Governor that they had cashed his order, when to their amazement they were toldit was a forgery. The police and other authorities were immediately called, into requisition and the whole city ran sacked; and on the next day tlie forger was found at the GlobeHotel, with the bank notes (some of which he had exchanged for gold in his posses sion.

Dr. Buckley, of the Baltimore Alms House, having, in his work on Epidemic Cholera, argued the probability of small pox being frequently communicated to per sons and neighborhoods by means of filthy bank notes, which had leen in the possession of those suffering with the disease, he advanced a theory which in Ohio is known to have been, on one melancholy oca ion, at laest, a practical fact- We allude to tlie. fact tliat the Teller of one of the Banks of Columbus, an estimable young man, contracted the disease by handling a batch of bills which had been transmitted from this city, where the small pox was then quite prev alent and in malignant form. The young man died and by such a seemingly harmless channel of communication, was that loathsome pesti lence t'ne cause of a family losing their main-stay in life. Cincinnati Enquire.

The opening of the California gold mines has had the most favorable effect on the resources of Chi li. An outbreak has taken place among the State prisoners at the Straits of Magellan, in which the garrison was taken by the rioters and the Governor killed. The American barque, the Florida, which had been chartered by the Chi lian Government, lias been taken possession of by the revolutionists while at the Straits. A letter in tlie New York Herald, from Val paraiso, gives more minute particulars, it says : There has been a terrible commotion among the State prisoners at the Straits of Magellan. Banished from their homes on account of polit ical and other offenses, they got up a revolution tliere among themselves killing the Governor, taking the garrison, and declaring themselves free and independent of Chili.
